High School Math Program
In high school, students focus on higher math—including algebra I, geometry, algebra II, trigonometry, and pre-calculus—in preparation for high school exit exams, college placement exams, and standardized college entrance exams such as the SAT and the ACT.
By the time they reach high school, all students perform at different skill levels. To determine each student’s abilities, we give each one a written and verbal assessment unique to Mathnasium. Based on the assessment results, our team builds a customized learning plan designed to fit the student’s specific needs in two important ways—to avoid spending time on things they already know and to strengthen the things they need help on.
We understand the pressures and busy schedules our high school students face, so our focus is to help with immediate problems, such as homework help and test prep, while filling in any foundational gaps in their mathematical knowledge. The goal is to enhance their performance in the crucial exams they’ll be taking that can have a great effect on their future—high school exit exams, college placement exams, and standardized college entrance exams such as the SAT and the ACT.
High School Homework Help
Our experienced math instructors provide homework and study help that addresses gaps in knowledge. As these gaps close, students understand the material better, boost homework confidence, and raise their assignment grades. With this help, instead of seeing homework as a burden, students begin to see it as a welcome challenge and an opportunity for further learning.
Students who prepare for standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, high school exit exams, and college placement exams at Mathnasium enjoy a substantial advantage over those who don’t.
We provide each student with a test prep curriculum customized to their specific needs. To assess their math skills, each student is given a math skills assessment. Based on the strengths and weaknesses identified in this assessment, we develop a personal instruction plan for the student. Working with that—and giving them practical practice in test taking—we optimize their performance. The result: enhanced results on the actual exams and a more positive step into their future.

When it comes to classroom assessments of 21st-century math learning standards as well as college aptitude exams such as the SAT and ACT, math proficiency—in everything from algebra to chemistry and physics—is especially vital.
But as every good teacher knows, there is not enough time in the day to provide one-on-one assistance for every single student in class, on every single detail of the lesson plan. That’s why it’s okay (!) to turn to online resources to help your high school students stay on track and get through more difficult areas of study. Homework databases, interactive games, videos, and testing modules that can make sense of your instruction abound, if you know where to look. Start with a few of Concordia’s favorites, below.
A note about high school math websites
Math websites can range in design from simple problem-solving to advanced theories with additional site references. Many can be divided by subject and grade level so that the student is not just visiting a page with numbers, but can focus on the type of mathematics where they may be experiencing difficulty in such as algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and calculus. If your student is advanced and seeking math help on a higher level, there are also sites that cater to advanced placement mathematics and pre-college level math.
The developers of this site have been helping high school students achieve greater results in mathematics since 1995. They have received numerous awards for their work and continue to provide a site that lends assistance in all areas of math. From explanations of theory to problem-solving equations, the information on this site is completely free. They also have a page titled Cyberexam that offers quizzes and testing for each area of mathematics learning.
Simply put, Math.com has everything needed for a website that assists students with help in high school math. This site is easy to navigate with a drop-down menu on the side that contains choices for every subject of mathematics studied on a high school level. The site also includes a section where teachers may find information for lesson plans and a multitude of classroom resources, and there is another section for parents who need help from the website’s homework directory for their child.
Owned and operated by Discovery Education, this website provides teachers with helpful resources to captivate each and every student in the classroom. As a top math help website, Webmath.com is a free student resource in which students can enter any math-related question and get a detailed solution on the spot. The unique aspect of Webmath.com is that in the “Math for Everyone” section, there are very clear examples of everyday expenses in which math is necessary. You can learn how to determine a tip at your favorite restaurant or even figure out the odds of winning that million-dollar lottery.
Another great site for help in high school math is Math Planet. They offer lessons, examples, and explanations that every math student needs at some point in high school. One unique attribute of this site is that many areas of mathematics have video lessons. In addition, Mathplanet.com offers SAT and ACT tests with separate downloadable answer keys.
These are just a few of the better websites that provide help in high school mathematics. Each one provides lessons, explanations, and resources that will assist students, parents, and teachers like you in achieving success to prepare for the future.
